Investors Want Proof That Companies Are Making Progress on Diversity

At Amazon last year, for example, Black and Latinx employees comprised 31% and 26.4%, respectively, of the company’s U.S. field and customer support team, which includes warehouse workers. At the senior leadership level, however, those shares fell to 3.8% and 3.9%, with white employees accounting for 70.7% of roles.
Nike, for its part, published five years of diversity data in its 2020 Impact Report, showing a 5.16 percentage point increase in the share of racial and ethnic minorities in its overall workforce during that period and a 13.38 percentage point increase at the VP level. On the basis of that disclosure, Nike has asked regulators to block As You Sow’s proposal ahead of its September investor meeting.
